in some states trying to get the message for him. bill clinton is continues with the florida event. president obama probably made the right call to come back. it wouldn't look good if he continued with that event down in florida if people are pounded by rain. all attention will be on this storm for a while, especially on the east coast, so he has a chance to get out there and be in front of the cam ras. we don't want to talk aboutfall politics in a natural disaster, but it will give him a chance to respond and look presidential. >> mitt romney had to cancel three events in virginia. the latest poll out of the state. he's closing the gap, although the president still has a four-point lead. how do you proceed if you're mitt romney? he doesn't have an official role, so is whatever he does open to criticism, or is it -- do you even morph through a political lens? where does mitt romney play through all of this. >> he can campaign in states not adversely affected by the storm. he can stay in ohio. i don't think there was any downside to spend more time in ohio and put in homilies in the
. remember that under president obama, like under president bill clinton, part of what has made fema so effective is the ability to have the resources in the bank, to have the resources, to get those resources ahead of the storm. because part of the problem is once the storm hits and you're trying to move resources in then you're behind the 8 ball. part of ryan budget, frankly, if we believe that's the approach romney would take says, no, no, you have to come back to us after a storm hits and get the resources you need. that's inefficient and we know that's inefficient. >> of course, we'll get the conversation of the off sets. >> of course. >> that means we have to take -- >> middle class americans. as you've been pointing out, all of a sudden he's nice to first responders when he wasn't so hot on them when we had real labor issues, was he? >> not at all. karen finney, great to have you on "the ed show." thanks so much. remember to answer tonight's question at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts on twitter @edshow and on facebook. >>> coming up, a down and dirty ad from the ro
but like our last president, president clinton you can get a lot of blows and shoulder your vote in a couple of places like florida. now, that is the con so you ask yourself where is the democratic party? remember them? the democratic party. the biological problem as you know as many of you have taken american biology is democrats -- jellyfish don't have spines and don't count and political parties to save your vote. it's not even right now. remember the jim crow laws were written by democrats and used today by republicans and analyst. is bipartisan apartheid my friends. history moves in waves. when i was in new mexico, one of the worst dates in florida and ohio and new mexico led terms of the loss of. george bush won new mexico in 2004 by 5000. it's amazing. most of voters or minority citizens, hispanic, overwhelmingly democrat. how do you end up with a republican governor and republican senator and george bush? they threw 30,000 in the garbage including the for the soldier -- do they have the special soldier present, absentee ballots for soldiers. every single ballot by a soldi
. the president canceled his appearance yesterday in orlando. one that was supposed to be alongside bill clinton. president clinton taking it solo. the president returned to washington to monitor sandy. in youngstown, ohio, joe biden stepped into join former president clinton on stage. both men fired up over a new ad by the romney campaign claiming that automaker jeep is planning to send american jobs to china. that's a claim that chrysler has plainly said is untrue. >> this morning before he left florida and went back to washington, he said, you know, of all the things governor romney has said, that probably hurts my feelings the most. he said you know, i never had any money when i was a kid. and the first new car i ever owned i was 30 years old and it was a jeep. i would never move jeep to china. now it turns out that jeep is reopening in china because they made so much money here they can afford to do it and they are going on with their plans here. they put out a statement today saying it was the biggest load of bull in the world that they would ever consider shutting down their american oper
and i'll play sound a little later of bill clinton in minnesota, but the reality in the minds of voters before sandy we were talking 3 to 5% of the undecided population out there. many others had actually put their stake in the ground and know who they are voting for. psychologically combine sandy, where does it stand? is it like christie said? >> i think to a lot of voters, especially in the states affected, virginia, maryland, pennsylvania, ohio, new hampshire shgz connecticut, in all these key states those voters aren't thinking about election day. they're worried about the impact this is having on their families and friends and communities and rightfully so. in terms when you look at it from 20,000 feet, i don't know what the good answer is. i think this freezes things in a lot of ways in terms of where we were in the election. i don't think it gives a candidate an advantage. what happens here is at some point election nearing and campaigning will begin again friday or saturday. voters will start to focus again. in terms of how it changes the race, i don't think it changes it much w
throat on tuesday night, but i also think exactly what they're doing -- look, bill clinton wherever they can get him. and going to all of the swing states wherever they can get him. i think more importantly, to actually show real people. in ohio, to have all of the auto workers whose jobs have been saved by the president's rescue of the auto industry, in sharp contrast with what mitt romney wanted to do, which was to let the industry go bankrupt and also in sharp contrast with the absolutely flat-out deceiving ads that mitt romney is running in ohio right now, where he even had to have the ceo of gm and the ceo of chrysler come out to say that they're lies and that he needs to cut it out. i think in ohio, such an important state for mitt romney where the president is leading right now, the obama campaign is doing exactly what they need to be doing. >> at a time like this, the visuals are just as important as the rhetoric. thank you both, maria, ana, nice to see you. >>> it is the other big story, superstorm sandy. it left behind widespread disruption and is blamed for dozens of deat
clinton picked up the slack and held that rally now. now we know that bill clinton will be in seven states in the coming week. how much is that a help to the obama team? >> well, without putting too fine a point on it you can imagine the situation in which that helps quite a lot. bill clinton having received better reviews at the democratic convention than the sitting president. bill clinton is hugely popular in the democratic base. so getting those crowds out is important because in the states they take them from the events to the polling places and you grab them and you say, come knock on doors with me this weekend. spend more time volunteering to get these votes out. so it's important that the gathering function of these events continue to happen. and with bill clinton being a big draw he's the best surrogate barack obama could have in these crucial states. >> now, bill clinton was in connecticut yesterday and he had this to say about the storm. he said we're facing a violent storm. but it's nothing compared to the storm we'll face if you don't make the ri
that bill clinton carried in '96 and that president obama carried. >> if that poll is accurate, romney will win florida for sure, if he's going to carry i-4 by that big a margin. most indications are that he's going to win the state. however, you have to point out, the obama campaign says they're competing in all the battleground states, and they are. the president's one event today is in florida with bill clinton, 10:00 this morning. >> going to be right in the middle of the i-4 corridor. >> right in the middle. they're competing there. they're not giving up. they're using their most precious asset today, one obama visit with bill clinton to go to florida. so they're not giving up, but there's no question romney has an edge there right now. >> you usually have, mika, north florida against south florida and central florida being what makes a difference. the south florida poll out of miami-dade shows the president -- >> largest county in the state, 52%-43%. >> that's not a surprise. i will tell you, this next poll, though, is a surprise. >> all right. let's go to virginia. the latest "w
. it was restored and then upgraded to a cabinet level position under bill clinton, and then reorganized under homeland security to an ancillary position within the broader framework there. so the problem is when you have competing forms of disaster for our attention, one which is natural, another one which is so-called manmade, you have a kind of moral triage going on in the government and that's problematic. the democrats have got it right. you put fema on its own bottom, allow it to address federal emergencies, and then you deliver resources to states and to local governments from the central organization of the government. yes, you're right. i think julian epstein is absolutely right. the democrats have been inclined to help those who are in need, and this is a challenge to us and a choice for americans here. what kind of government do you want? one that stands behind you when you are in trouble, or the one that kicks you to the curb and pours salt in your already open wounds and tells you you're on your own? that's the kind of choice we're facing here. >> michael makes a really good point
then, jimmy carter twice, walter mondale, bill clinton twice and al gore and in 2008, barack obama. >> well let me -- i know what you want to get to. when this editorial board sat down, we didn't look at who's had an r behind his name and had a d behind his name. the economy is what's best for this country for the next four years. partnership from the standpoint and political affiliation to set aside to examine the issue that iowans care the most about. the issue that's percolated incredibly high level. who best can jump start this economy over the next four years. the editorial we have written in the past couple years so many times, it's got to be in a bipartisan way. this red state, blue state gridlock that we find ourselves in isn't just being felt in washington and it's being felt all across the country. there's a growing demand in voters. this election will prove it. you're hearing at so many different levels. they want washington to work. they want there to be leadership. it has to be an effort from somebody that reach across the political aisle that makes something happen.
scheduled in orlando this morning with president clen -- clinton, and then they announced that the president would be coming back to washington this morning, probably heading to air force one as we speak to be in the white house and on the scene on top of preparations for hurricane sandy. so president clinton will be speaking in orlando, and joe biden in ohio. meanwhile you didn't think anybody could defending richard mourdock, right? >> i would hope not. >> bill: after saying he couldn't allow any exception for abortion even in the case of rape, that is something that god intended. yesterday on this week newt gingrich defends him. >> every candidate i know every decent american i know condemns rape. why didn't stephanie cutter get over it. we all condemn rape. why can't we also defend killing babies. >> bill: yeah, just get over. it the fact that he says after todd akin says a woman can't get pregnant because of rape and richard mourdock says even if she does get pregnant she has to go through with that baby because it's part of god's plan. and newt s
, mitt romney campaigns in ohio. followed by vice president joe biden and bill clinton at a rally in ohio. a look atand a look at iowa wite latest chairs. the only place to get the real deal. i like newsmakers and -- i like that the commentary is only intended to let you know what is going on. there is not opinion and i appreciate how i can see through and understand the progrming itself. and i get my analysi elsewhere. c-sps jus tout th only wato g >> justin wat c-span on comcast. c-span, brought to you as a public service by levision pvide >> as on the east coast, the candidates alter their schedules. the federal goverment is closed. president obama nad mitt romney suspended campiagn activities through tuesday. and barack obama monitors the situation with the federal emergency. mitt romney asked supporters to help victims affected by hurricane sandy. he was joined by a congressman from ohio. this is 37 minutes. ♪ >> avonake. i say, avon lake is fired up today. thank you all for being here. and i want to thank mary taylor to make sure ohio meets its potential. but they can't do it on
goes to the directly to the office of secretary of state hillary clinton. >> steve: goes directly to hillary clinton . this flyies in the face of the mem that the white house is pushing. we didn't have warning that there was trouble there. that simply is not true . on august 8th. ambassador stevens sent a cable that benghazi was a security vacume and on september 11th the ambassador was under fire and siege and growing problems with security and now the new cable shows there was a potential for a coordinated attack. clearly this is not the message that the white house wants to push. newt gingrich was on with shawn hanitet and he is disgusted by it >> the white house is playing games with us. who was in charge. who did the president say should take care of this? did they want to rescue the ambassador and people killed with him? why was nothing done for sevenhours? you now have 7 weeks of refusal to explain seven hours and i find it mystifying. >> gretchen: current politicians and senators and members of congress asking a lot of the questions . the white house is pushing a particula
that they sent president clinton to minnesota tuesday. they're buying airtime in all three states that romney would like to make xcompetitive. but the president's campaign, they called romney's move desperate. in a video released yesterday, the race was framed to his volunteers this way. >> we are ahead or tied in every single battleground state. that means mitt romney has to win not only the tossups but a couple states where we have a clear lead to have any chance of winning the presidency. >> messina ran through the battleground states but explicitly did not mention michigan or minnesota. he says, quote, they are throwing money at states where they never built an organization and have been losing for two years. the romney campaign and its allies' decision to go up with advertising in michigan, pennsylvania, and minnesota is a decision made out of weakness not strength. well, let's look and see what happens if you put these states in play. i'm going to mess around here. we have our battleground map. we're going to go to our sliders here so let's move those states -- let's move them in tossup
clinton here, joe biden, the president, etc. politically, we are going to get the job done in the next few days. host: we are talking with democratic congressman tim ryan of ohio, member of the budget committee. if you want to ask him about the race in ohio or budget committee questions, give us a call. democratic line -- 202-585-3880 the republican line -- 202-585- 3881 ohio residents, we still have that line open to you -- 202- 585-3883. congressman ryan, a couple comments on twitter about the jobs numbers. liz smith writes in -- frankly, that few of jobs shouldn't be getting anyone satisfied or excited. another comment from james ard -- the jobs numbers are irrelevant. obama has no hope of americans giving him another chance. your thoughts on those comments. guest: nobody is satisfied. no one will say -- let's just quit doing what we are doing. who is able to take us from where we were, which was a hole that was dug with some ideological policies that have been proven not to work, blow a hole in budget deficit, the economy collapses? i would like to ask -- if these policies that they wa
stopsllary -- the bul with him. he or hillary clinton needs to have the buck stopped with them. >> who told susan rice when she went on the morning shows that the film was the reason for the spontaneous demonstration. who do you think told her and jay carney to talk about it as the videotape being responsible for the demonstration? >> i do not know. that is what has made it worse for the administration. this went on for about two weeks. they have been kibitzing over something over whether the president said it was terrorism or not terrorism. they said it was primarily because of this movie. they spent money apologizing to the people of pakistan as if somehow the american government or the american people have something to do with this crazy movie. that was bad policy and bad form. it is why this story goes on and on. i get back to the primary question. why was no one guarding be ambassador? why did they removed the 16- person security team that has -- had requested to stay? it was requested that a security team stay in one of the most dangerous countries in the world. would you like to be t
people wanted to use it. but according to the new york times story, clinton, former president clinton said no, it am not work. hit him on being too conservative and they followed his advice and now they are back tracking and trying to use the flip flopper issue again. it is very systematic of the lack of a message for obama. here nine days before the election. they are changing the negative message on romney having spent 7 months talking about other stuff. >> pointing out 10 days a way. and the porls are tightening up. when it comes to the swing states, you can antiwin without ohio. you don't feel everything hingos that state, why? >> undecided vote always goes against the incumbent and significantly less propensity of the obama people to vote than the romney people to vote just in terms of motivation. i believe that you start off with 179 electoral votes and states that mccain won and north carolina and indiana and remember marginal obama states and usually republican. and that bringings you up to 204 and then you have florida, colorado and virginia. where the poems that i seen all s
will join president clinton and a monday afternoon campaign appearance. mitt romney has scrubbed his appearances today, instead spending the next two days in ohio. just over one week ago in the campaign. we will be talking about early voting on "the washington journal." we want to begin with the what this question. what if it is not decided on election day? what if there is a recount or multiple recounts? let's begin with some news of the morning. the front page of "the new york times. marty it is now counted by county. -- it is now county by county. there is also this from "the washington post." va. even as being scrubbed for a number of candidates. the scheduled destruction did not stop the two candidates from delivering attacks on each other yesterday. the president of using his of parents to accuse mitt romney of raising taxes on middle class when he was governor of massachusetts. the question we are focusing on this morning is, what if there is an election dispute? we are basing it apart on a story that has this. election disputes likely. we already posted the question on the fa
an identifier as who we were. we were the choom gang. >> bill clinton, you know, famously said he didn't inhale. obama, on the other hand, not only inhaled but was sort of the ringleader of the idea of total absorption, what they call ta, where you had to make sure that everything got inhaled. take roof hits while you're in the car. >> i think it was important to barry because perhaps it did fill a void that wasn't apparent at the time. i don't think any of us thought of it that way, but now in retrospect, we look back and went, hey, we really were a family. this was really, really cool. >> narrator: obama's senior yearbook tells the story. >> in his yearbook he thanks "gramps and toot," who are stan and madeline, his grandparents, and the choom gang, and ray for the good times. who was their drug dealer. who was kind of a hippie who could get them the good stuff. and he doesn't thank his mother. >> narrator: by the time he graduated from punahou, obama had decided to leave hawaii. >> one of the central themes that i find from his life is his intense desire to avoid being trapped. his mother ha
for eight year, we had a president who shared our beliefs and his name was bill clinton. his economic plan asked the wealthiest americans to pay a little more so we could reduce our deficit and invest in our future. at the time, the republican congress and a senate candidate by the name of mitt romney said this would hurt the economy and kill jobs. it turns out that his judgment was just as bad back then as it is today. by the end of president clinton's second term, america created 23 million new jobs and incomes were up and poverty was down and we had the biggest surplus in our history instead of a deficit. we know the ideas we believe in work. we know their ideas don't work. for most of the last decade, we tried what they wanted to do, giving big tax cuts to the wealthy that we could not afford, giving insurance companies and oil companies and wall street free rein to do whatever they pleased. you know what we got? falling incomes, record deficits, the poorest job growth in half a century and an economic crisis that we have been cleaning up after for the past four years. so, we know what
. the republicans made a calculation after eight years of clinton that they were too far to the right, and needed to be in the middle for the national election, they needed compassionate conservativeism, to bush they sort of saw their bill clinton. but bush spent 1999 developing a real program. later called it big government conservatism. but he had a real plan there to create a greater federal role in education. he had a real plan there for a federal role on prescription drugs. they developed a vision. the republican vision -- >> hence the immigration bill. >> exactly. this is what he ran on in 2000. so there was some real substance there. what mitt romney is doing right here, he was far to the right in the primary. gave the conservative base everything they wanted. in the republican platform. this is one of the most conservative republican platforms we have seen. he did nothing at the convention from a policy standpoint to move away from that. he waited until october 3rd to start in a debate to articulate moderate-sounding outcomes. not policy, but outcomes. things that sound pleasing to modera
today, former president bill clinton made the political link between hurricane sandy and manmade climate change when he referred to mitt romney's stance on climate change in the recent debate. this is gripping. let's listen. >> he ridiculed the president, ridiculed the president for his efforts to fight global warming in economically beneficial way. he said, oh, you're going to turn back the seas. in my part of america, we would have liked it if someone could have done that yesterday. all up and down the east coast there are mayors, many of them republicans, who are being told you got to move these houses back away from the ocean. you got to lift them up. cli 3459 change is going to raise the water levels on a permanent basis. if you want your town insured, you have to do this. in the real world, barack obama's policies work better. >> he's unbelievable. our extreme weather we're facing right now in the northeast from droughts and wildfires across the country, now hurricane sandy, make the case that manmade global warming is not only real but is having an effect. ed markey is the top dem
using. somebody they had put out on their own. not quite the level of bill clinton for obama but not bad. you know. marco rubio and chris christie sort of are the two sort of stars that can get people on their own. and here he is with obama. i tell you, you see him -- here's another sort of fascinating thing to watch. the number of photographs that people asked to take with the two of them, and they kept taking them. what are they going to say? you have these people at the shelter or their homes and they're both emotional, upset, and excited to meet the president and the governor. and here they were posing for pictures together. the two of them. with constituents in new jersey too. that part of it was a little surreal, especially when i sort of remind myself that today's wednesday and election day is, i don't know, not even 200 hours away. >> an extraordinary day. chuck todd, thank you very much for joining us tonight. >> you got it. >>> across the river from new york city, hoboken, new jersey remains mostly flooded and mostly without power. as much as a foot of water flooded into the ci
-in-chief and not only this time around, but this failure disqualifies hillary clinton from being a future commander-in-chief. as she says the buck also stops with her and clearly, she is not qualified to be president of the united states if she watched these people die. >> alisyn: brian, why haven't we been able to get more straight forward answers from the administration? >> we're waiting, i believe you said it right, a measured response, the republican house is doing an investigation, let's be fair and give it time. and i understand there's a timetable, let's be clear about presidential issues when it comes to mitt romney, number within where does he stand on endorsement of richard mourdock, and rape and have children of rape. >> and benghazi, we're talking about-- >> and the second point, the second point he needs to talk about john sununu and racist remarks he's made in general colin powell and talk about the points-- >> no, leadership is the recognize we're not political party we're right versus wrong, getting answers. four men dead in benghazi and part the of the conversation, why we're not g
at the inaugural gala in 1985, and met a whole bunch of presidents- - richard nixon, george h.w. bush, bill clinton. he wrote an impressive, picture- laden book, "the president's table." and was invited to the finest anchor desks in town. >> barry h. landau is presidential historian... >> the story of the ultimate inauguration collector... >> simon: but when we met up with him in june, he no longer wanted to tell his story. he'd been convicted of the single largest theft of historic artifacts in the united states. he stole thousands of items, including hundreds of documents, signed by some of the most famous names in history-- george washington, thomas jefferson, francis scott key, marie antoinette, and voltaire. he'd pilfered them from museums and libraries all over the country. u.s. attorney rod rosenstein was in charge of the prosecution. he was a con man? >> rod rosenstein: barry landau was a con artist. and he used his reputation as a presidential historian in order to gain the confidence of museums and other people who had custody of important documents. and then he stole them. it was a reput
, bill clinton was campaigning in minnesota yesterday. do you think that the obama campaign is worried about these states? >> i would say that i would get worried or i think maybe increase the level of concern about these potential battle grounds if you saw the principals going there. the most precious resource that a campaign is the candidate's time because that's finite with only six or so days left. if you send surrogates like bill clinton to minimnesota, you don really lose anything by doing that. it's kind of a plus plus. so i think it's a smart strategy. if i see more polls coming out of minnesota or michigan or pennsylvania showing this a close race and showing the president's numbers down to 48 or 47, then i'll get concerned. up until that happens, i'm not going to be that concerned about those states. >> so if romney is concerned then we would see romney making a stop in those states? >> he's partially right but he's also spending money there. they're not going to spend money after bad. if the poll numbers are as close as you put up on the screen, chris, then if you have the r
